Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Museum could make an absolute fortune from events like this. People watching the runs would want to visit the museum to see her displayed. They could set up a stall to sell their goods during the running exercises. I woldn't turn a chance like that down. Hope something happens soon though. I'm 66 an...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

I was being polite. Once the damage is done the best thing is to get shot of the (tea bag) and all the damage done and try to recover the situation by starting again. In the end you get a nice cup of tea and every one is happy.

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Since then we have beacame great mates and a more loyal mate you could'n't wish for. Wouldn't treat my worst enemy li...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

I used to live a couple of mile from Usworth air field as it was known then and remember watching it fly in from the back garden. Point of no return when it landed as there wasn't enough room for it to ever take off again. sadly its lay dormant ever since. They used to charge 5p for people to go ins...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Just a point on the corroded jet engine in the museum. If memory serves me right the museum were quoted several thousand pounds for a display case. BBP thought it was a bit steep so we made them one free of charge. I remember Bill and i being in the workshop in the early hours of the delivery day to...
